JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Jefferson City police say a 58-year-old woman faces animal cruelty charges after 41 animals were taken from her home.

Police say the animals were removed Thursday after a warrant was issued because of several complaints about the house and concerns about the number of animals living there.

The Jefferson City News-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/28Q2I8A ) trash and junked vehicles were removed from the property after an abatement order was issued in December 2015.

The home was condemned after the 40 cats and one dog were removed. The animals are in various stages of health and were taken to the Jefferson City Animal Shelter for treatment.

The woman was taken to the Cole County jail after being arrested on 41 counts of cruelty to animals, a misdemeanor.
